Bell Group boost tracking capabilities with Ctrack

Bell Group UK has upgraded its vehicle tracking capabilities with an advanced telematics solution from Ctrack, an Inseego company.

The contract painting, decorating and maintenance specialist has adopted Ctrack Online along with the Ctrack Mobi2 mobile app, which will enable supervisors and managers to access tracking information when away from the office. Bell Group will use the system to monitor driver behaviour, business/private mileage and operational performance across a fleet of more than 300 vans.

Ctrack Online will support Bell Group’s ongoing fleet strategy, which is designed to improve road safety, minimise environmental impact and achieve operating efficiencies. The company has been working with Ctrack for over ten years, resulting in measurable improvements in fleet performance including significant fuel savings, lower insurance premiums and a reduction in unauthorised personal vehicle usage.

Around 30 supervisors and managers will use Ctrack Mobi2 to monitor vehicles via a smartphone when they are away from the office, with no access to a laptop or PC. The mobile application’s vehicle list will provide a snapshot view of all resources, with the ability to drill down and obtain a range of additional data. The journey history will also offer the ability to view individual vehicle trips in a list or map view, while the driver behaviour report will identify speeding and other driving exceptions across the fleet.

Ian Henderson, Group Managing Director of Bell Group UK Ltd commented: “Our partnership with Ctrack has helped us optimise our mobile resources, allowing us to address key fleet issues and keep costs under control. This latest upgrade further increases our tracking capabilities in line with the objectives of our fleet strategy, which aims to boost performance, achieve legislative compliance and enhance duty of care.”

John Wisdom, European Managing Director of Ctrack said: “Bell Group is a longstanding customer that is taking advantage of our technology leadership and fleet expertise to gain advanced visibility and control over its van operation. We have considerable experience helping businesses to achieve clear benefits and a rapid return on their investment by making the most of their telematics data.”

Ctrack Online is a web-based vehicle tracking system providing visibility and control over mobile assets. Designed to be intuitive and simple-to-use, this solution enables businesses to better manage their fleet operation and deliver real benefits by driving down costs, boosting productivity and improving customer service.
